You've Changed

“It really changed my life. When we split up, something changed, permanently,
in me. My heart sort of broke that day, and it will never be the same.”

- Gwyneth Paltrow
(b. 27 Sept 1972)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

  You can't appreciate the happy moments if you don't know the sad..... 

BONUS #1 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l-JOUyQtX0w - You've Changed - Billie Holiday

BONUS #2 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rXBpVctOEVw - You've Changed - Sarah Vaughan, 1960

BONUS #3 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wTd8t6qug_U - You've Changed - Ligia Piro - Hmmm - she could have a bit of a problem here; she's singing, "No need to tell me that we're through, It's all over now," and she appears to be rather preggers.....  It reminds me of a cartoon I saw in a magazine at least 50 years ago of an obviously pregnant Juliet standing on her balcony, and mournfully pleading, "O Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou, Romeo?"

BONUS #4 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Er4uxL1dcRc - You've Changed - George Michael - My Favorite Version! 


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/You%27ve_Changed:

"You've Changed" is a popular song originally written by Bill Carey and Carl Fischer in 1941. It has been covered by many singers...


HEALTH ALERT:
    From Jimmy Smith ('62 / '63) of VA - Paraphrased from Phone Call of 11/19/13, 7:42 PM - "   Jesse Miller ('63) of VA":

We've received word that Jesse is  in the hospital gravely ill with complications of diabetes and kidney disease, and is in imminent danger of losing his big toe. His general prognosis is not good. I thought you'd want to let people know.
 

   OH, NO! I am devastated to hear this, Jimmy! Thank you for letting me know. I'll add Jesse's name to our Prayer Roll:

    From the Best Dressed Girl in the Class of 1959, My Sister, Eleanor Buckley Nowitzky of NC - 11/19/13 - "Christmas?":

I think "Yule" like this.

FIRST CHRISTMAS CARD
 


Twas the month before Christmas

When all through our land,

Not a Christian was praying

Nor taking a stand.

Why the PC Police had taken away

The reason for Christmas - no one could say.

The children were told by their schools not to sing

About Shepherds and Wise Men and Angels and things.

It might hurt people's feelings, the teachers would say

December 25th is just a ' Holiday'.

Yet the shoppers were ready with cash, checks and credit

Pushing folks down to the floor just to get it!

CDs from Madonna, an X BOX, an I-Pod

Something was changing, something quite odd!

Retailers promoted Ramadan and Kwanzaa

In hopes to sell books by Franken & Fonda.

As Targets were hanging their trees upside down

At Lowe's the word Christmas - was no where to be found.

At K-Mart and Staples and Penney's and Sears

You won't hear the word Christmas; it won't touch your ears.

Inclusive, sensitive, Di-ver-si-ty

Are words that were used to intimidate me.

Now Daschle, Now Darden, Now Sharpton, Wolf Blitzen,

On Boxer, on Rather, on Kerry, on Clinton!

At the top of the Senate, there arose such a clatter

To eliminate Jesus, in all public matter.

And we spoke not a word, as they took away our faith

Forbidden to speak of salvation and grace

The true Gift of Christmas was exchanged and discarded

The reason for the season, stopped before it started.

So as you celebrate 'Winter Break' under your 'Dream Tree'

Sipping your Starbucks, listen to me.

Choose your words carefully, choose what you say

Shout MERRY CHRISTMAS,

not Happy Holiday!


Please, all Christians, join together and wish everyone you meet

"MERRY CHRISTMAS!"


Christ is The Reason' for the Christ-mas Season!
 


   Thanks, Lady!


      From the Incomparable Charis Bean Duke (Governor Thomas Johnson HS, MD - '85) of PA - 11/19/!3 - "Conversation":

Adorable 8 year old piano student- I call my grandma Oma because she thinks Grandma sounds too old. 

Me- I'm going to be a grandma in March, and I think it's too old also. What should I be called?

Adorable student- Ummmm, Mister Piano?

     Thanks, Charis!


     From Me ('65) of NC - 11/19/13 - "I Admit...":

FINALLY:

From www.ajokeaday.com - 11/19/13:
 

Two cowboys were riding their horses together on the prairie. They came upon a big pile of manure. The first cowboy said to the second, "I will bet you a $1000 that I can eat all of this crap." The second cowboy agrees, so the first cowboy ate the entire pile and won $1000.

The two cowboys rode on and after some time came across another pile of manure. This time the second cowboy bet the first that he too can eat the whole pile for $1000. The first cowboy agreed and the second cowboy ate the entire pile and won the bet.

They rode on again. After a while the first cowboy said to the second, "Do you realize that we just ate a whole pile of manure for nothing?"

You've Changed

Written and Composed by Carl Fischer (1912 - 27 Mar 1954) and Bill Carey, 1941


I've an awful feeling
That this thought that's been a stealing
Through my brain
Is not to be ignored
But to really tell the truth
Though I'm not a well known sleuth
I honestly believe that you are bored
You've changed
That sparkle in your eyes is gone
Your smile is just a careless yawn
You're breaking my heart
You've changed

You've changed
Your kisses now are so blasé
You're bored with me in every way
I can't understand
You've changed
You've forgotten the words, "I love you"
Each memory that we've shared
You ignore every star above you
I can't realize you've ever cared
You've changed

You're not the angel I once knew
No need to tell me that we're through
It's all over now
You've changed
